'The Rainmaker' at Edgemar Center for the Arts

August 29, 2013

N. Richard Nash's "The Rainmaker," 1950s-era chestnut about a "spinster" swept up in romance by a dazzling con man, can be laughably archaic. However, at Edgemar Center for the Arts, director Jack Heller crafts a striking, specific portrait of a bygone time. As for the pitch-perfect performances, they should all be distilled, bottled and preserved for posterity. 2437 Main St., Santa Monica. 7:30 p.m. Fri. and Sat., 5 p.m. Sun. Ends Sept. 29. $34.50. (310) 392-7327. http://www.edgemarcenter.org.
